Kwok Yu-Ting (2012)
This is my first time leaving home and studying overseas. With both hopes and fears, I started my journey at Imperial College London. The first semester passed in a ‘whoosh’ with loads of activities, some stressful moments, and mostly fun. Everything at Imperial was perfect – the environment, the teaching, the students, just as I have imagined in my dream university. I feel very much at home, especially in my department (Earth Science and Engineering), which is well-known for having a close relationship between staff and students. Our tutor even treated us out for Christmas dinner after our last tutorial. I took Spanish at Imperial Horizons. Though the course was short, it was a worthwhile experience to learn a new language and their culture. As Imperial is a science-based university, it surprised me with the number of musical opportunities it offers. I am a member of ICSO (Imperial College Symphony Orchestra), Sinfonietta, the Mockingbird (an a cappella group), as well as ULSO (University of London Symphony Orchestra). Besides, I have also engaged myself in ICPASS (Public Awareness and Social Service), Catholic society and table tennis. I feel blessed to have made a group of close friends too. I wouldn’t have settled down so smoothly without their support and help, especially in cooking. I am most grateful to have entered one of the best universities in the world with the ICAAHK Scholarship. And I’m sure I’m going to enjoy the rest of my 4 years of study at Imperial.

My first term at Imperial College has passed in the blink of an eye. EEE has always been regarded as one of the most demanding subject in the college. I would say the course is tough yet rewarding. Frankly speaking, having 30 hours of timetabled sessions a week is definitely tiring, but the satisfaction of learning what you love tells you all your hard work pays off.
Although flooded with 9 – 6 lectures every day, I still engage in different clubs and societies. Currently, I am elected as the Art Director of the annual Variety Show and the project committee member (PCM) of ICPASS. Being the Art Director, I gained experience in publishing different marketing materials, and get to make a lot of new friends. I also take part in organising different charity events such as Charity Dessert Night and Christmas Dinner by being a PCM. Participating in all these events had granted me valuable experiences.
Moreover, being a music lover for long, I joined the IC Symphony Orchestra and Sinfonietta as a percussionist. We performed in Dorchester last month and are going to travel to London’s prestigious Cadogan Hall, home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, for a concert showcasing The BBC Young Musician of the Year in the Spring term. I had a fruitful and exciting first term here in IC and I am looking forward to the upcoming fabulous time in the college.
It is indeed a privilege to be able to represent Imperial as one of the three ICAAHK scholars this year. Imperial has, so far, been a demanding yet rewarding experience. I am sure Joan and Derek will concur when I say that we are favoured with one of the nicest university campuses across London, not to mention the friendly faces and delighted smiles which made us feel at home.
It wouldn’t have been as easy to settle into Imperial without the help of the different societies available in the student union. I am a member of ICPASS (Public Awareness and Social Service Society), Chinese Society, Sinfonietta and ABACUS, just to name a few. Being one of the main casts in the annual Variety Show in February was another valuable experience where I got to meet and mingle with lots of people. Not only did I learn to manage my time effectively, having been elected the Vice President of ICPASS also means that I will continue to have as much fun next year while striving hard to keep up with Imperial’s academic excellence at the same time.
The Scholarship Committee wants to emphasize that many more applicants would have been worthy to receive the scholarship had we had more funding. We would also like to thank all the ICAAHK Endowment Fund donors, especially the generous donors who donated specifically for this year’s Scholarship to meet the shortfall in income, which makes the availability of three scholarships possible.
The ICAAHK Scholarships are supported by income from the ICAAHK Endowment Fund.
